The Nordic Countries Collaborate for Better Health Research

The health ministers for the five Nordic countries—Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden—are joining forces to build a shared platform for health data, drawing from the countries’ existing registries to create a database of more than 26 million patients.

Another goal of the registry is to work together to ease the legislative barriers and ethical approval of research projects in the region.
